When I was surfing for something sweet without flour I stumbled over this recipe. Reading about white beans in a dessert made me think immediately ‘Oh my gosh, what’s that?’ But thinking it over I recognized that it is a good way to substitute flour. So I tried it with just the half of the ingredients – to be sure not to throw too much away in case I don’t like beans in a cake.
I was very surprised how easily the preparing and how yummy the raw dough is. No taste of beans at all! Ok, let’s see the ready chocolate-banana-square though…
The cake is fluffy, light, and very tasty with coconut, chocolate and banana flavor. It is sweet without being too sweet. But it didn’t rise at all. Well, no baking powder and nothing to let it grow is the answer.
This is a really a new experience to taste white beans. I think I will experiment more with them soon.
